paul offers an immigration plan. >> there is no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we were not inclusive. >> the chairman of the republican committee. why did mitt romney lose in 2012? the republican national committee did some homework on the question. it was an autopsy that involves -- involved contacting more than 50,000 people. they did not need a study to tell them president obama owned the minority vote. charles, your reaction to the study? >> i would not have used the word "autopsy," as it applies to a corpse. we still have the gop, althought it is somewhat in a coma, but it will recover after eight years of liberalism. the one thing the rnc had to look at is what it did wrong. it should not be leading the party about ideas or ideology. that is the job of the leaders in the party and the candidates, but it should have done the nuts and bolts -- the outreach, the social media, the kind of ground game that obama had and republicans did not. it was lacking, and that is where it needs to recover, otherwise the game will be uneven from here
are available on our website, c- span.org, and the straw poll looking at 2016 candidates, senator rand paul, who kicked off the cpac conference, closely followed by senator marco rubio. rick santorum, coming in third, governor chris christie at number four, representative paul ryan, then governor scott walker. a front-page story in "the baltimore sun," saying he would seek office himself, and others. james is following the story from politico. hohmann is joining us live on the phone. thank you for joining us. guest: thank you. host: is nothing more than a beauty contest. was veryis straw poll close. it's sort of codify our view that when and paul and marco rubio are the two fan favorites right now with the grass roots. marco rubio -- everybody expected rand paul would win the straw poll, including people who did not support him, especially coming out of this filibuster last week, so i think some people were surprised at how close it was, paul getting one- quarter of the votes and marco rubio getting one-quarter of the votes. rick santorum only got 8%, so it was quite a drop-off. they spoke back-
the administration trying to draw it back. paul ryan wants to rescind the whole healthcare program and start fresh, but that's unlikely. so given that distinct possibility, what are we left with? >> well, i'm not as pessimistic as you are. i think there is just a slight chance that maybe some people who have pushed this thing forward, can stop for a moment and instead of thinking about themselves and their own political agenda and their own political future, think about the good of the people and the good of america. i think there's still that slight possibility. it doesn't seem great, i admit, but it's possible, and it's something we should work toward. assuming that doesn't occur, we need be looking at all the legal possibilities that exist in order to save us from this financial disaster, which is pouring fuel on the fire which is the incredible debt that continues to pile up day-by-day, which some people don't think is even a problem. >> neil: you were one of the first in the medical community to say these are enter linked. that got you invited to cpac, where you quickly became one of the star

to see paul ryan defund "obamacare." our economy cannot afford it. it must be every conservative's mission to defund it and move away from socialized medicine before it is implemented. 2013 is a challenge. let can to canton andit must be a year where we wage attack against and those forces in the republican establishment that hijacked the conservative movement. we must not rest. as conservatives, we all believe america is an exceptional nation. we do not want our beloved nation to have the financial books of greece or the gun laws of china. waynds, i fear that is the we are headed. president obama and his left- wing liberals -- the media is in the bag for this administration, and we all know it, which is why the grass roots of our movement must not sit on the sidelines. you must redouble your efforts and together we must fight those who want to sell out our principles. remember reagan's three pillars of conservatism -- free enterprise, strong national defense, and per-family social policies. we must not cede these principles to president obama on one hand, or the republican estab

59-40 in the senate with democrats and five republicans including rand paul and cruise voting against it. they hit a political attack against those supporting the ryan plan. >> the senate did vote to reject the idea that the balancing the budget by arbitrary tate should come before middle class families. >> after congressman joe garcia voted no yesterday on ryan's budget, super pac went on offense running this ad. >> joe garcia voted against balancing the budget. garcia backs policy to put america more in debt. >> garcia acknowledges that it could have local consequences for local votes. >> it shouldn't be, but they are a testify in addition of party priorities. i say to members when they come, you are an independent representative of your district. >> for 32 of the 100 senators, this is the first time they will vote on a budget as senators. making a paper trail. for the murray budget it's expected to come up for a vote after midnight with 55 democrats in the senate and only a simple majority needed. it's expected to have the votes. shannon? >> keep an eye on it and talk about it with
a chance really to see firsthand the rolling out of what we call the ryan budget. paul ryan as the chairman of our budget committee once again leads, i believe, the intellectual and thought process on talking about the future that we should have in this country. certainly the budget is that primer, that guiding post, that opportunity for us to lay out a philosophy about what republicans stand for, and today the american people are having a chance to hear from our colleagues, the democrats. of course as you listen to our colleagues, our friends, the democrats talk, everything about a budget is all about if you're a republican, us harming the middle class, us ruining the country, headed in the wrong direction. that is because they have taken the simple approach to they will try and fund everything. they will try and fund hospitals. they will fund airports. they will fund schools. they will do all these amazing things. and the facts of the case are is that that process and that future does not work. paul ryan yesterday, before the rules committee, very carefully, argued the point that really i
by another 4.6 trillion over the next decade. paul ryan says this is the only way to balance america's books. >> their plan this year, they can fire it and go to a new one next year. those plans compete against each other around drives down costs and increases quality. it is a bipartisan idea. we want to apply that idea to the rest of the medicare for the younger generation. what this shows you can make medicare solvent and sustainable. you can make sure you don't change it for current seniors and save it for the next generation with these kinds of reforms. bill: that plan is on the way to the white house. republican budget plan for 2014 calls for a balanced budget in 10 years and sharp cuts for safety net programs for the poor and other programs. >> sharp blow to the president's health care law three years after it was passed republican senator orrin hatch and democratic senator amy klobuchar leading the charge repealing a key medical device tax that helps bankroll the law. stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company" on the fox who upwards 40 million people will be paying a whole lot more f

: to you have any names in mind of leaders who might paul was in the right direction and appeal to everybody? >> and the good news on this is i see a big change of tone in washington, especially since the last election. when i listen to leaders, they're talking about what matters most. talking about the fact that the free enterprise system is not a system to make you until warrior to help hedge fund managers and private equity companies but to help the powers to the powerless, to give a fair break. that is the kind of language they're using. we don't necessarily need a new visionary. will we need is people with real experience talking about it in a way it is aspirational and truth. stuart: well said. a pleasure having you with us. come again please i want to bring money into this because you know what's going, the obamacare. the think it is just pure wishful thinking on my part that all system is unraveling? >> i hope you're right. the problem is, when obama talked about the fundamental transformation of the nation this is what he meant. he went after the four main pillars of th
. and i did not want to rob peter to pay paul. my view is that we need to maintain the operations of the agency. i don't want to for low people. and i need to make rational judgments across the ppa's that we are given by the appropriations committee. >> the appropriations committee is used to dealing with access cdexcessures -- with acces spencers. i'm glad to see that you did dip into surplus funds and other operations in the department rather than releasing criminal aliens onto our streets. i will ask unanimous consent to enter the following document into the record during weeks that ice to respond to this request for information. stating-- a letter that, on february 20 third, 20 13, immigration and customs enforcement processed and released 270 illegal immigrants from the ice you a facility in arizona on this date alone. of the 207, a total of 48 had been charged or convicted with either manslaughter, child molestation, aggravated assault for my weapons defenses, forgery, drug offenses or other serious crimes. and third coming memo from director morten morten to secretary upon
to pay paul. >> yeah. neil: you think you were snickered? >> a direct money transfer from people in one income bracket to people in another income bracket. neil: so here you were trying to be pragmatic of this, this guy might be a different type of democrat, unlike his dad, what? >> well, the other strange thing is that raising the minimum wage to $9 over a couple year period -- neil:ments to be high -- wants to be higher than that, go ahead. >> well, in new york -- neil: right. >> and giving rebates to businesses for hiring people under 20 years of age. i'd hate to be a 21-year-old high school dropout or somebody who just finished high school because you're make me unemployeeble relative to a person a year younger. neil: you keep going through the training. beyond that, they bring in more people to train at a lower wage. >> i think that's the danger of that because it's just an artificial boundary. neil: you know, wilbur, they must have crunched number on this, they were getting numbers on this millionaire tax, and contrary to the revenue declining, we get revenue in like the obama fol
. make them get up there like rand paul did. it will be a difference if they really had to do it. so if you accept the filibuster then, of course, you accept defeat. you know, from the very, very beginning. and as far as the assault weapons ban, harry reid again, ahead of time, says, oh you know, it's a loser. >> dianne has worked so hard on this going back to the day she found the mayor dead in his office, had been killed. how strongly she feels about that. i know that. but right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. >> that's not 60. >> bill: damn it, here is what really burns me about this. okay? first of all, notice, it's not the assault weapons ban that's brought up for a vote and loses. we can expect that maybe. we can expect that. it's not that the republicans shoot it down. we certainly would expect that. and we wouldn't like it. but we would know how it happened. what harry reid is saying, we are not even going to allow a vote. we are not even going to bring it up for a vote. but, you know, to mean,
think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
is a return to the big ten. but just let me ask you, is it clear now, it sounds like it, rand paul gave a speech. is the gop committed to an immigration reform bill that will have big influence on how the party thinks? >> well, larry, i'm not part of the group that is working this out, but it's a very important issue that we have been talking about of wanting to make sure that, hey, our immigration system is broken. it needs reform, and we are a country of immigrants and opportunities. so, i think there's a real opportunity for the gop to lead this effort in a way that also makes sure that we don't have another wave of illegal immigrants and we can with do both. >> and last one, i want to get to this, will the republican party allow more socially liberal people in the northeast particularly, just to be part of the republican party without finger pointing or insinuations or beating the heck out of them in primary debates, can that happen? the gop got hurt badly on the issues last time-out. >> every state, we need to get the best candidate in each state that can win elections and i think
generated by hon still -- by huntsville. they went on to say it is a major target. said doesman paul damon you believe centers like target are specific -specific- centers are targets? what they are targets. -- >> they are targets and recognize that as a significant threat. we have a program called agent in the lab where we host agents to 17 of the research facilities and laboratories around the united states. they are embedded in research facilities to better understand and address that threat. a national security .igher education advisory board the leaders ofte these universities as to the occur at our can target their research facilities. i would say probably has gotten exacerbated in the realm of digital information and cyber attacks. you no longer have to rely on an individual becomes your asset to gather the secrets in the cyber arena. it is just as easy to have somebody familiar with a cyberworld sitting in shanghai are beijing where some place in russia to attack the networks and export the information. a third is more substantial than it was a tenor 15 years ago. substantial is mor
, and marco rubio and rand paul getting into it and meanwhile they are all trying to figure out how to fix the republican party. i'll tell them how. stop third quartering each other in public. and number two stop pretending that you don't need new policies, you just need to explain them better. no, they don't need a new pizza box, they need a new pizza. have a great wednesday everybody. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." [♪ theme music ♪] >> oh, we're on the air. look at that. >> hal: this is what happened when we get so engaged in the news, and i blame jacki schechner quite frankly. because there is a level of grav tas that she brings to the most minuscule event, and we actually -- i'm almost surprised we actually get to read the news. >> we'll do it. and then get to talk about some other stuff in depth. and then we're on a roll and then we have to leave because it's our last day. >> hal: here is jacki schechner. >> three marines are dead this morning after a shooting in virginia. police locked down the base and found the first victim around 11:00 p.m. a
through paul ryan's budget plan. the republicans, if they want that to happen, to get ryan's plan through, they're going to have to during one of the cr's or debt ceiling debates, they are going to have to shut the government down. we still take in 2.7 trillion, will pay for medicare, social security, will pay off our debt, the full faith and credit of the united states, but isn't that the only way that ryan's budget gets done? >> no, no, not at all. ryan's budget, you know, we're going to have a series of sequential battles. what's going to happen is the democrats in the senate are going to ultimately pass some kind of a budget resolution. i doubt it's going to be like this one. republicans in the the house are going to pass the budget committee resolution and these set levels for all of the appropriations committee allowing for protection and that is to say you can have expedited consideration of appropriations bills that fall under that level. the republicans are going to pass bills that have spending lower than the democrats. the democrats are going to have bills, they're higher than
. >> an immediate cessation of the sequester cuts. paul ryan explaining his budget in a standing filibuster without his mother present. >> i was thinking gummi bears. >> i was getting to that. you have to have one crazy demand according to steve martin so you can plead insanity. >> president obama has touched a down in tel aviv. president said it was good to get away from congress. he will visit jerusalem this afternoon visiting with president perez at his residence and participate in a tree-planting ceremony, photo op and bilateral meeting with the press. tonight he meets to netanyahu at his home. the president will stay the night in jerusalem. as for what is likely to come unin conversation, the worsening crisis in syria and the iran's nuclear program. >> steven colbert's sister is now the designee for the empty seat. former governor mark sanford has made the run off cut. he got about 37%. that second run off or the run off will be april 2. he will face former charleston council man or state senator grooms. massachusetts senator elizabeth warren is writing a new book she plans to call "rigged" al
party that i think will be helpful. if you look at marco rubio, paul ryan, kelly ayotte, some of our governors from a clear generational shift going on in the republican party moving forward, democrats may want to reach back. kasich's numbers have been rising dramatically, where he is certainly not upside down. >> i have a couple minutes for last questions, and we will try to have swift answers. >> now that the elections are over, we really need government to work for us. as political strategists, is there a chance that compromise can be commendable -- can compromise be commendable and not an election year liability? >> i work for ronald reagan. he compromised on everything. we had a democratic house with a huge majority. he had to. the real divided government can work. ronald reagan proved it could work. clinton proved it could work. those are guys who got huge legislation enacted. the reagan economic plan, immigration reform, social security reform -- here is the thing -- the president has got to lead. for four years we have had a president was not willing to take that kind of lead
it and if you do, we're going to attack you, paul ryan, because you have a creative, insightful way to preserve medicare and make it more healthy in the future and put it on a sound path, we're going to say you're trying to destroy medicare. he's got a plan to save medicare. bring it into the 21st the -- te 20th century --, 21st century. ought to be discussed openly and fairly, not demonized. that's the level of debate we're in here. so in private we talk to our colleagues and they say yes, we need to make changes, rereally do. well, when? and when the paper is printed, the budget is printed, it's not there. it's not there. so there's no reform of the fundamental drivers of our debt. we also know that last year we spent $750 billion on 83 government social welfare programs, means-tested programs. that is, if your income is below a certain level, the government deems you worthy of subsidy of some kind. now, these 83 programs, many of them are duplicative, there's not a coherent focus to them that endeavors to help the people really other than giving them money. giving them aid. there's not a suf
to a trillion dollars in new deficit for this year. you know, you look at paul ryan's budget, for example, ten years down the road, 41 1/2 trillion dollars in spending and that was supposed to be a victory, because the democrat's version was 46 1/2 trillion dollars, we're still outspending our means. still a broken system. d.c. really has to figure out how to get a balance, a balanced budget would be a win. stuart: in the short-term if i'm a trader, trading stocks, for example, i think this is a win for republicans and i think this is a win for me as an investor. stocks go uu. you say? >> well, i think you're conflating. and 20 years trading and what i told you last time and the last time and last time, i think that things are getting better in spite of president obama because if we continue to juice the system the way we are, we're adding 85 billion dolllrs to the treasury, ingratiating the banking system. i'll tell you this, ready for this? you have investors out there to watch the show and pick out stocks to buy, just buy u.s. banks. buy u.s. banks. we are giving them so much money. we're g
think we know it is happening. if you look at the youth and our party like marco rubio and paul get and many others, you the idea. we have great hispanic leaders like ted kreuz. i think we have done a real lousy job sometimes of bragging about the success that we have had. when it comes to diversity we have made great strides. i think we'll have a lot of options in 2016. reach out toe to the african-american community, what are your thoughts on insuring every vote counts of? >> we're not going to bore you with the details in the republican national committee. we believe that we need to make it easy to vote in hard to cheat. if that can capture everything that we believe in as a party. it should be hard to cheat. that is something we have endeavored to do. ondo have some restrictions ballot security. questions about cpac where a panel on african-american voters dissolved into a shouting match with at least one activists voters are being systematically disenfranchised. given that backdrop and the party, how do you plan to overcome those challenges? >> for one thing you have to show up
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
of representatives today. this is a budget by paul ryan that will allow us to get to balance. that means the government will stop sending more money than it takes in by the end of the decade, which is really exciting. what that allows us to do is to get the economy rolling, jobs being created and provide more certainty so young people coming out of college know there is going to be a job in their field. those in the workforce will know they will be needed. those in retirement, social security and medicare and those will be strengthened and security. an exciting time. guest: -- the: when it comes to continued resolution which funds the government through september, did it include sequester cuts that took effect earlier this month? spending atcludes the sequester level. there is flex ability for the military, department of defense and a few other areas that allow money to be moved to areas of greater priority. the house republicans passed to that thest year so across-the-board cuts did not occur in the way they have occurred. we felt there was much greater flexibility. we need to be wiser
